King Cap rules England

After his team's magnificent win in Croatia on Wednesday, England boss Fabio Capello is now being hailed as this country's greatest international manager since Steve McClaren.

England dealt the Croats a severe drubbing in the 4-1 victory, with pint-sized Arsenal youth Theo Walcott helping himself to a hat-trick in the process, and Capello's decision to play the Barack Obama lookalike has been seen as 'inspirational'.

Leaving David Beckham on the bench until five minutes from the end, and replacing John Terry with Matthew Upson to give the Chelsea captain a two-minute breather on 88 minutes, were also deemed, by the media, to be "masterful modern football management decisions not seen since the McClaren era".

Capello has led England to the very top of Group 6 with wins against, not only the brilliant Croats, but also fellow world giants, Andorra, who were brushed aside 2-0, after another sublime England performance that had many writers reaching for their dictionaries for new 'worst' superlatives.

England's next World Cup qualifying match is against the might of Kazakhstan at Wembley on October 11th, when, in the event of a home victory, Capello will be crowned as England's greatest-ever Italian coach, bar none.
